We thank you that Jesus did not come to call the righteous, but rather sinners in need of repentance. If you were looking for righteous people, you would never have chosen us.
We now ask you for your forgiveness, healing, cleansing and complete transformation. We want to know that we are new creatures in Christ.
And then, just like those earliest disciples, we want to be used by you to draw others into a relationship with Jesus. We ask that you would help us to “fish for people.” Like Levi’s friends, let us have the blessing of seeing our friends and family come to know you.
We know that we come to you as sinners, but that you have the ability to make us saints. Make us holy, please.
On Wednesday we will get together for Week 5 of 12 in our “Make Disciples.” series. Below you will find links to an overview of the full 12 weeks and for the fifth area on the map, Engaging God’s World: Day Job.
During the 12 weeks, we are addressing areas on a comprehensive discipleship map. After discussing each area, we will try to establish Milestones that would provide evidence of personal spiritual growth – markers that we work toward.
The ordinary becomes something extraordinary when God is involved. The work of the Holy Spirit does not have to look supernatural. He works through our work, using earthly materials and very human capabilities.
